Those L.A. Lights

los_angeles_night_lightsThose L.A. lights shine bright
From the drunks in Hyde Park
All the way down to Reseda
Where the giants settled
And breathed their last
Backlit by enormous strobes
Flashing like cameras in bloom
Illuminating crowded space
With their fishbowl effect
Spread across the miles
In this city of lost angels
Straining to find solace
So far away from home
Chasing those substantial ghosts
That haunt without haunting
Down south in Inglewood
Stretching arms toward Van Nuys
In a neverending embrace
Of love and understanding
Under lights as bright as day
Even in the dead of night.
